edinburgh the capital of scotland, is a beautiful and historic city. with plenty to do in the city, it’s the perfect place to visit for a few days.

here are some activities that we would suggest:

edinburgh castle – the iconic castle sits upon an extinct volcano and offers stunning views of the city. Visitors can take a guided tour and learn all about the city’s history and see the scottish crown jewels and the stone of destiny.

the royal mile – this historic street connects edinburgh castle to the palace of holyroodhouse and is lined with shops, restaurants and historic buildings. visitors can also take a tour of the palace of holyroodhouse, the official residence of the british monarch in scotland.

ghost tour – edinburgh is known for its haunted history and visitors can take a private guided tour to explore the city’s spooky side. heading underground seeing parts of the city you wouldn’t normally see.

the johnnie walker whisky tour – whether you are into your whisky’s or not this is a fun activity to do for everyone. the immersive tour really makes learning fun. you can book a private tour so you can just be with your guests or friends, and don’t worry for the people that don’t drink alcohol you can opt for the non-alcoholic version. there’s a bar at the end of the tour, as well as a gift shop so you can try all the different flavours they have to offer.

ghillie dhu – a place to practice the traditional scottish dance, the ceilidh. ghillie dhu was originally st thomas episcopal church, it has now been beautifully restored keeping the traditional features. if you are looking for something a bit different, then this is the place to be! with a private room to hold your own private event or join a larger group. you can have drinks, dinner and lots of fun learning the traditional dance!

here at sevenevents we like a challenge, and consistently coming up with something new and exciting ideas is what we’re all about. so next time you want to do something different with your group contact us and let us show you what we can do.
